Many vision systems offer a limited or spot inspection capability, based on the technology they use: multispectral imaging. PPO’s Smart Imaging System uses hyperspectral imaging, which offers a more robust and complete inspection capability. Here’s what that would look like if we were looking at a photograph.

Here are some other differences between multispectral and hyperspectral imaging: 

Comparisons of multispectral and hyperspectral imaging

PPO’s Smart Imaging System uses hyperspectral imaging, which means we can deliver a higher quality image with vastly better tolerances and much richer insights than multispectral imaging.
